Who Is Danny Gorrer?

November 28th, 2012

Now a member of the Bucs’ top quartet of cornerbacks for the 2012 homestretch, Danny Gorrer is a guy most Bucs fans never heard of until last Sunday against Atlanta. Gorrer saw a lot of playing time in nickel situations and Roddy White shoved him off the line on a slant route/catch to all but seal the Falcons’ victory. Gorrer is an undrafted third-year player out of Texas A&M, who spent 2010 with the Rams, played in 11 games for the Ravens last year, and was cut this season in October by the Seahawks before signing with the Bucs. Joe hit him up with a few questions this week.

JoeBucsFan.com: Did you have any connections with the Bucs before you got here? Is there any story behind you coming here?

Danny Gorrer: Not at all. I think they saw me play before and liked what I done in the past and gave me an opportunity.

JoeBucsFan.com: You’ve been with a few teams. Greg Schiano talks a lot about how hard this team works. What are your impressions of the work ethic here versus what you’ve seen at your other stops?

Gorrer: Coming from Baltimore and coming from Seattle, I feel like every team I’ve been on worked hard. And when I got here I felt like I fit right in with the guys because everybody on the team works hard, and everybody’s got one goal in mind, and that’s to get better every day. I feel like I fit in.

JoeBucsFan.com: That play when you were covering Roddy White on the third-down slant, there’s not much you can do there. What happened there?

Gorrer: Yeah, there’s not much you can do, but I feel like I watched film on that play, and I’ll see what I can do better. I’m kind of upset about the play with Roddy. There’s always something you can do to get better.

JoeBucsFan.com: Anything unique you can tell fans about yourself? What should people know about you? Maybe something about your history in the NFL and something in your personal life?

Gorrer: Something about me, when you see me out there you’re going to see me going 100 percent. You’re going to get the best of Danny Gorrer every time I go out there. Fans will see me getting better every week.

    That’s the problem with the NFL rules today. The receivers are given too much of an advantage over defenders. If Danny had shoved R.White at the line of scrimmage, he’d most likely been flagged.

    The Bucs are asking a lot out of the four horsemen with Biggers the only one drafted.

    I honestly think Gorrer and L.Lewis ( oh and the other Lewis ) do not have the talent to play well in the NFL. Gorrer is a very small dude who does not have great ball skills or coverage. Who saw L.Lewis drop back WAY to far and WAY quick on the first pass to Julio Jones? That was a horrible play, probaly one of Ryans most simple completions all year. When are going to stop giving Myron Lewis so many god damn chances? He has had enough of them and watch when we finally get rid of this joke of a football player ( probaly not for a long time and it makes no sense) He will either never see a NFL field again, or will sign with a team and soon be dumped once again. Biggers is a solid nickel CB but he is not good enough to be a starter. IMO we should pull a Dallas move next offseason. Pick up a solid free agent CB then draft one of the top CB’s in next years draft. This secondary has been so frustrating this year, but you can’t really blame any of the guys that are starting right now cause thug Talib screwed us over then selfish Wright screwed us over. We need to greatly improve our secondary next season and we should be good to go.

    That play you are talking about looked like it was designed for him to drop into deep cover, not a blown coverage.

  5. NJBucsFan Says:

    We did not get Babin and I am thankful for that, but do you think we will find out if there was a claim placed on him by the Bucs? I read 8 teams placed a claim.

    Moot point anyways NJ – Jags were 2nd in line.

  7. dcbucsfan Says:

    The onus is on the D-Line! They offer little to no assistance to the DB’s!

  8. NJBucsFan Says:

    It’s not a moot point. It would give a peak into possible future moves and if being a Bucaneers Man is definite criteria.

  9. JonBuc Says:

    I fear a “Rocky Mountain Gorrer Show” on Sunday. Manning is a nightmare….especially for the Bucs.

  10. FloridaGirl Says:

    Really…….who is Danny Gorrerr?????
    Danny Gorrerr is TOAST!!!

  11. CanadianBucsFan Says:


    If that play was designed for Lewis IMO thats not very smart. Julio Jones is a smart enough WR that if he sees LeQuan dropping back very far and quick he’ll do a quick hitch route.

  12. Macabee Says:

    Good question!

  13. 76buc76 Says:

    The CFL season is over maybe we should be looking there.We need some recovery speed at cb.Once a WR get’s a step on us our only hope is an under or overthrow.

  14. 76buc76 Says:

    OK Ok I’ll do it already I’ll come play corner.Sure I probably run a 5.6 have a beer belly and gray hair’s but an upgrade is an upgrade!!
